newsevents_maryandcar_12.jpgWine lovers will get all revved up about Lot # 8 at Auction Napa Valley, scheduled for June 7-10. Experience time travel times two with this clever offering, designed to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Spottswoode Estate. The winning bidder will drive away with 125 bottles of Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon—five bottles from each of Spottswoode Winery’s 25 vintages. Reminding us to savor the journey, Spottswoode owner Mary Novak is packing the wine in an electric car that’s an identical copy of the one she drives around town.

The car tops out at 25 miles per hour and comes in the same color as Spottswoode’s most sought after wine. Your friends will be green with envy.
